bought this phone and made the rookie mistake of sending my partner to get collect it.
the angle the photos were taken from the seller didnt show this & the description stated the phone was 100% full working order & good condition.
I arrived home & find the phone in such condition where the back seams dont meet.
its hard to know what happened which is where i guess i'd like your input / suggestions on how to proceed.
i'm thinking either the battery is swelling underneath causing the casing to buldge hence the seems not meeting OR it was dented OR the previous owner removed the casing for some reason & botched up putting it back on.
I bought it for my mum and get it at a pretty good price (well thought it was a good price) hence wanting to get my partner to go collect it before someone else snapped it up .
if it was just a cosmetic issue i'm not so bothered, but I had a huawei p6 and it suffered a swollen battery issue so i'm thinking its more likely that this is the same that just some random cosmetic accident. If I keep it i'd rather get it fixed if it is a battery issue as it's dangerous & will only get worse but it'll cost an extra 50 on the price i paid.
maybe i should just cut my loses & sell try to sell it (again dont even know what I would actually get for it selling as I dont know the actual issue). the phone is fully functional.
see photos in comment. there is what looks glue near the bottom seam where its not joined properly which could either be melted from the heat of swelling battery, or indicative that someone has done work on it previously.
ive had it on charge and it seems to be charging pretty slowly (not sure how fast it should be charging)b ut its going like 10-15% in an hour. this would further suggest the issue is with the battery.
the phone is the huawei honor 7
